Default Re: HOU intrested in FA OLB Dumervil

Broncos had officially sent Dumervil an offer sheet.
Does that mean that the Texans are out of the loop?

Texans is rumor to be interested in Dumervil. But, were we really in the mix of negotiation with Dumervil to begin with? Seems me like just interested and nothing more at the moment.

I don't think we've heard any credible source saying that we're interested. I don't think we've done any more than take a sniff like probably most of the teams in the league. There are only a few real suitors for him and I don't think we're one of them.

Default Re: HOU intrested in FA OLB Dumervil

The Denver Post reported that the offer is in-line with the revised offer that he accepted.

That's for an average of $10M a year.
Even if Dumervil agrees to split the difference of the nearly $5 cap loss, it would still require more than $9M per.

I don't see how the Texans can afford that.

They cannot. Too many obligations in the future we must consider.

To be honest, Dumervill is a high level pass rusher. Every team in the NFL SHOULD be interested in trying to get him. Whether they can is of course another issue.

Unless they've reported something new since last night (and I can't see they have), it does not appear they are offering him $10 Million/year.

Elway would not get into details about the team's new proposal, but the expectation was it would be three years in length for considerably less than the $30 million value of his original contract.

In theory, they still can.
If they believe that with another year under their belts, either Crick or Jamison can replace Antonio, they can restructure AJ's contract to make room for Dumervil.
I'm not comfortable with anything more than $8M per though.

That's the exact piece that I read yesterday.
Looks like it was updated to correct the typo (or incorrect info.)

But then they have to take into consideration re-signing Cushing next season and Watt the year after. The Texans aren't in terrible position cap wise, but they can't be aggressive or they risk losing out on their own guys in the future.

If they pay Dumervil between $7-8M per year, they should be able to work out the cap space.

Cushing is going to count nearly $5M this year; an extension can't be a whole lot more than that.

Smith counts something like $9.5M this year already.
That cap space can accommodate Dumervil's and at least some of Cushing's raise (maybe all of it) next year.

And then there's the portion that we slotted if we were to resign Barwin.
